FanDuel DFS NFL Week 14 picks and lineup advice: Wide Receiver
While Tyreek Hill ($8700) is always a great play in tournaments with his big-play upside, Stefon Diggs ($8200) is actually my number one receiver play this week. For similar reasons to Josh Allen, I think the Bills have an offensive explosion this Sunday, and Diggs should be one of the prime beneficiaries.
Similar to Tyreek Hill, D.K Metcalf ($7300) and Tyler Lockett ($7300) are fantastic tournament plays against a Houston defense that has completely given up. With Russell Wilson looking like his former self last week, there is a good chance Lockett or Metcalf finish as a top-five receiver on the slate.
Similarly, Mike Evans ($7200) is a great pivot off of Chris Godwin ($7700), who many will be quick to lock into lineups after his seventeen target game last week.
Terry McLaurin ($7100) has been pretty average for fantasy this year, but I think he breaks his streak of mediocrity this week against a pretty poor Dallas secondary. With the way the Football Team has been playing, I think they have a real shot to do some damage and possibly surprise Dallas.
I will also mention Mike Williams ($6900) as the Chargers wide receiver one with Keenan Allen on the COVID IR. While the Giants’ defense has been solid at times, Williams should easily pay off this relatively cheap salary with a higher volume and his big-play ability.
As for some cheaper plays, Jarvis Landry ($6400) is clearly the focal point of the Browns passing offense and has a nice matchup against a battered Ravens secondary that he just went for 111 yards against two weeks ago.
Brandon Aiyuk ($6400) flopped last week when everyone paid up for him, and I think he will come in under rostered this week against an even worse Bengals secondary. If Deebo Samuel is to miss, Aiyuk becomes a very appealing play at such a discounted salary.
Finally, Jalen Guyton ($5200) is a long-shot play for tournaments, as he has been a deep-ball target of Herbert since last year, and could step up as the Chargers wide receiver two in the absence of Keenan Allen.
